Cooper Wilkinson and Ellie Ryan won the singles championships at the Gunnedah Tennis Club titles.

Wilkinson turned back the challenge of former titleholder Andrew Osmond in the hard-hitting final of the men’s singles, 6-2, 7-6.

After comfortably winning the first set, Wilkinson was put under pressure in the second set, when Osmond slightly moderated his pace and picked up his control. Osmond had two set points but Wilkinson was able to cancel out both before winning 7-6.

Ellie Ryan was runner-up to Taya Powell last year but went one better this time, downing Isabelle Moore in straight sets in the final.

Wilkinson won the championship treble, also taking the doubles with Matt Rouse in three sets over Dale Martin and Andrew Osmond and the mixed with Isabelle Moore over Craig Louis and Ellie Ryan.

In division 2, singles winners Archie McCormack and Amarni Louis won the treble (singles, doubles and mixed). 

In the under 12 division, Lucas Grosser and Sophie Neilsen won all three events. 

Lucas was able to edge out Cooper Cobb 10-8 in the third-set singles tie-breaker, backing up to win the doubles, with Sam Dorrington, over Cooper Cobb and Ben Grosser in another tie-breaker.

Sophie played consistently to defeat Molly Murphy 6-2, 6-1 in the girls’ singles, also winning the doubles with Maggie Brown and the mixed with Lucas Grosser.

Harry Tudgey and Allie Neilsen were dominant in the under 10s, Harry taking the singles with a three-set win over Lachlan Finnerty, as well as the doubles with Jack Bunce and mixed with girls’ singles winner Allie Neilsen.

Allie won the doubles with Aimee Hobden.
